Ok, but not without its issues


as long as you read the reviews, understand what you are buying, this is an ok monitor.

big, bright, and the buttons for the front seem durable ( the cheap ones on my previous monitor broke off)...decent resolution, and a great price, if i ever get my rebate in. no dead pixels

rebate means waiting for my own money back, also, on the sides, particularly near the bottom of the monitor there seems to be some bleedover light especially visible if there is a dark screen, or you are viewing it from another angle. no dvi

Not Bad for the Money


It is a 'value' monitor, so don't expect the performance of others costing 1-1/2 times as much.

Good price. Good resolution. Nice looking monitor. A big step up from a 17-inch CRT; very nice to be able to see two pages side-by-side (which is why I purchased a 22-inch model)

Two dead pixels near center, but no streaks or lines. Once you know the pixels are there, the eye automatically goes to them whenever there is a dark single-color screen

Lucked out and got a pristine open box for $180, Thanks Newegg!

Use word processors with 1/2 in. letters and still get half a page on the screen not to mention web browsing. I would not recommend using this unit to monitor video feeds otherwise great

A DVI would be nice, but it is the off brand of Viewsonic. One sticky pixel buy unnoticeable

Two Dead Pixels on RMA Replacement


New egg is great to work with!

Very nice picture and resolution

First monitor was RMA'd due to 3" - 4" bright line in screen. Replacement monitor has two dead pixels, which are very noticeable except on white background

viewsonic customer support is the very poor. Getting an rma because of power supply failure was not easy. Then I get email it has been received expect 10-14 delivery, two weeks later same response. Now they never received it they claim. It's not worth...

no problems :D


Just trying to help, it may be you have a defective monitor given you bought it open box, but its highly unlikely, the problem you describe is too similar to mine, and would be worth checking into.

this message is for the guy who is bashing the q22 wb monitor. I own the same one bought it almost a year ago FLAWLESS performance. The reason why your in game monitor text sucks for games like cod 4 for example turn your aspect ratio on 16:9 or 16:10...

I hope changes were made


Actually, I don't own this latest series. I do own the Qptiquest Q22wb. I regret ever having bought it. As mentioned, lines of text in games are blurred or fuzzy making them hard to read. Now I see that the only way to buy the Q22wb is "Open Box". I'm...

Great for games with no text displayed

Some lines of text in games is blurry
